Epilogue to Maple Bee post

Fortunately this is currently available on YouTube – the first chapter (for us) of the Mel Garside story.

The audio is neither hi-fi nor drastically lo-fi. Like a superior bootleg it has a lot of “ambience” and the lyrics are difficult to make out, but for most of these songs there are no other extant recordings.

And the sad part is – as simple as many of these songs are, they’re more commanding than most of the Four Worlds/Little Victories material. Crucially, this rivals Eradicate Apathy as a recording where we really get to revel in That Voice – if only, if only she still sounded this vibrant.
